This is a Dharma Talk given by the Reverend Jay Rinsen Weik at the Buddhist Temple of Toledo in 2016.  In this talk, Rinsen explores the importance of working with a teacher, especially as one tries to practice in the face of difficult times.  

In seeking the path of compassion we a pointed back to our cushion and the practice of zazen.  Zazen is the place where we can loosen our attachments to wrong views about suffering.  How do we do this?  By embracing the spiritual "not knowing" of the moment and bearing witness to what comes up in our mind-stream.

In this Dharma Talk, the Reverend Jay Rinsen Weik uses a famous story about the family of Laymen Pang to explore how our striving can obscure how we manifest the Dharma.  Is this moment difficult?  Is this moment easy?  What does it mean to move beyond difficulty and ease?  To explore this, Rinsen calls on us to sit down in the middle of agitation and elation and practice in there.
